Text output to STDERR/STDOUT during run, and resulting crash of application

When attempting to run ASD's "Lifeforce" demo the program complains about the
absence of the "Microsoft Video 1" codec. The demo does run, flawlessly I might
add, without the above codec with the only "problem" being that the demo
voluntarily disabled the small amount of in-demo video and notifies the user of
this before running with an 'OK' dialog box. However, if one attempts to supply
the missing codec by overriding 'msvidc32.dll' with the native Microsoft
version, the demo crashes. The crash is always reproducible, stemming from a
null reference at one specific location/instruction in the program text. This
behavior does not, of course, manifest itself if the program is run natively
under, say, Windows XP.
